Trying something ‘New’

NYU alum preem experimental drama in downtown L.A.

Rachel Kolar and Lauren Brown, the multihyphenates behind and in front of “New,” an experimental rock opera at the Million Dollar Theater, crafted an after-party scene Friday night at the Standard in downtown Los Angeles not unlike Andy Warhol’s infamous factory, swarming with fur-coat and gold lame-clad types.

The event filled nearly half of the 2,345 historic seats at the venue, the Million Dollar Theater, which may or may not have been a result of the ticket price. Free.

We had a range of audience,” Kolar said, “from families to homeless men and women.” This range, however, was absent from the party. – Lisa Engelbrektson
